Thanks - can't believe you would consider using a shovel on that thing. The thought of that would give me the same as Douglas:
No joking about a snake that needs killing

Shovel is pretty standard technique. Versus a human, a snake is on defense. It's not gonna pursue you. So an overhand swing of the shovel should be fine. Unless you're a girlyman and prone to missing, falling forward, getting bitten on the face.

Even if you cut the head off - watch out!

It's certainly doable, but I see no reason to take a risk when I can dispose of it by moving my index finger a half inch and give it a swift death.

I second the shovel. Friendly advice, don't try to shoot a snake with a P99.

BTW, snakes love bamboo.


I killed several in my backyard growing up. Usually used a garden rack or shovel. At that age you feel fairly invincible and I don't think I was ever in any real danger. Once we moved into the city I didn't see them around anymore.

FWIW, I was more worried about the centipedes that would turn up on occasion. Those things would get rather large but easy enough to miss when walking in the lawn.
